“Don't walk past. Read this and give it a go - ness”
Reviewed July 26, 2013 via mobile

Friendly. Homely. Great food. Staff want to be there which is a great start. Chicken dish was amazing. Spag Bol one of the best ever. Busy so try and get there early or a bit late but that says it all. A real local treat no wonder it's still alive and kicking after over forty years.

“The best "boozy" lunch in Melbourne.”
Reviewed July 15, 2013 via mobile

If it's good food, good wine & good customer service you want, then Cicciolina wins hands down. I took a few interstate friends for a boozy lunch & they haven't stopped talking about it. Always a winner!

“eager to please”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

I visited Ackland St, and was attracted to this little restaurant. We sat outside in the sun, and ordered from the creativer, extensive menu. I had a hankering for something in particular, and it was no trouble for either the waitress nor the chef. And it was delicious too!

“Staff that didn't care”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

We visited here whilst on holidays after hearing rave reviews from family. We waited out the back & enjoyed a drink. Eventually a table was free & through we went to the restaurant. We were sat next to a couple that were basically at each others throats & the woman clearly intoxicated. The seating is very intimate so to ignore their conversation was impossible. A table across the way was free and I went to move but it was quickly filled. The waitress came over to take our order & we asked to be moved. No luck but the most disappointing part was she told us quietly that the couple were regulars & there was nothing she could do - they always fight. It ruined our much anticipated time here & if this couple are regulars I'm sure there are plenty of people who'd never come back. We complained again when asked how our meal was. No sorry. No compensation, they clearly just wanted to look after their 'regular' cashed up bogan couple. We would not come back, the food did not make up for the atmosphere.

We had dinner here on four different occasions. each time the food was first rate and the service excellent. The seafood and desserts are especially scrumptious. Well done!
